Crocs are curious and clever. They might remember that they have seen people at a certain place many times and that this might be a great spot to sit and wait for dinner to come on by.
Salties can hide in the shallowest water and will charge up out of the water to grab prey. Even the fittest person with the best reflexes won’t be fast enough to avoid them. Sometimes dinner can be an unwary wallaby coming down for an evening drink but sometimes the crocodile might be waiting for you!
If you are going camping this weekend take all your water with you or collect it from a different place each time. Stay at least five metres back from the water’s edge at all times.
Be Crocwise when you are camping with your family.
